to this new article, cheney continued to argue that we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he kept saying that's not what we ought to be doing. we ought to be attacking iraq. so what did you make of that looking at it. of course, he was always the intelligence guy in the white house. he was between bush and the cia gu guys. he was using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role? >> cheney was instrumental and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by an ideal logical agenda that was based around gettiget i saddam hussein and that movement. considered the unfinished work from 1991 to go in and get saddam hussein. so they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was here in these warnings. and at best in curious about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleeza rice, who i like personally. but she's saying something i'm afraid that's going to be on her record book. she's testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush about the li
the war in iraq, refocusing on afghanistan, and eradicating terrorist leaders, including bin laden. >> where mitt romney was willing to turn his back on akron, dayton, and toledo, ohio, the president said, i've got your back. >> president obama believes in a country where billionaires pay their taxes just like their secretaries do. and i can't believe i have to say this in 2012. a country where women get equal pay for equal work. >> this is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single l american in every corner of this country after 90 years of trying. this is the president who ended don't ask don't tell so that love of country, not love of another, determines fitness for service. who made equal pay for equal work the law of the land. >> you know, it's like a football team when you've got this fourth string quarterback, and all of a sudden he comes out and starts throwing touchdowns. why has he been on the bench is my question, duval patrick. >> i've heard him speak before, but the other night, i've never heard him like that. they need to send
have the associate editor of the "washington post," author of "little america." john salts is an iraq war veteran. he was embedded with the iraqi army as an advise we are. i'll get to you john to talk about what this means to the morale of our soldiers, but what is causing this attack from the soldiers standing next to you? >> well, this is a great question, chris, and nobody has a good, clear answer. it's a very effective strategy by the taliban to go right at the heart of the u.s. mission there which is to get the afghan security forces to stand up on their own, to take charge of security in that country so our men and women in uniform can come home. you know, u.s. military has sought to claim this is the result of a whole variety of causes, sometimes personal feuds or grievesances as well as taliban infiltration. that is true, but it's certainly a tactic that's being used more by the taliban as they see it having an effect, as they see it creating distance between u.s. troons and their afghan counterparts, as they see it, for instance, leading some of the nato members to accelerate
ghatenn w we no the h realized there was no weapons of mass destruction in iraq. that was the whole reality we lived in, the disillusionment on the right, the confusion in the middle, the anger on the left. they didn't even experience that period of time? >> well, chris, to put a charitably, i think the publican party today is the noalpa thas sense of it having kind of marinated in their world view down in tampa at the republican convention. they think of a simpler world, a world where the verities they believin still apply in simple terms. the fact is it's a complex world. rnnt, if the whole thing is i don't want government, i don't believe in government, then you aren't going to participate in the reality of economic life for one in america today. th're the nostalgia party. they would like to believe that theilitary was correct, that dick cheney was correctbout on mdect thoureto believe in that -- >> but what evidence do they have that we were right about iraq and wmd? >> they don't. what i'm saying i they want to will themselves into believing authority figures who used to be res

that are surrounding him part of the push to war with iraq that americans have since turned against and judged to be a war that was not worth fighting. >> you know, one of the questions is what is going on with romney during the day that this happens. when we had the situation in libya, simultaneously in cairo, and he puts out a statement attacking what he calls the disgraceful behavior of president obama, who is pushing that and saying release the statement, attack, attack, attack. who is doing that? >> i don't know who is doing it but it seems to be his own impulse and it has been consistently in this campaign on matters not only foreign but also domestic. but it really is unseemly when you have american embassies under assault for a presidential candidate to start playing politics with it. and as you said before, there are people on his foreign policy advisory staff who are neoconservatives who do not reflect the majority of the foreign policy establishment or of the american people. >> any chance of a shake out before we go on here, any chance romney is going to say, i'm surrounded by idio
in iraq. maybe she did it for political reasons. your thoughts, congressman? she will be much better in a general election where there's a clear field without obama running against her. no heavy weights to challenge her. she has a better opportunity to come across as the true democratic champion. your thoughts? >> she emerges after this election win or lose by president obama, and he will win, as the front runner not only on the democratic side but even on the republican side. there's a real hunger in the country as we sit here this evening for someone who understands politics, who loves politics and knows how to deliver by using the levers in politics. she's proven that. she stood above politics by accepting the role of secretary of state in the face of what was a tough primary, contested primary between her and senator obama. and here we are four years later with her husband reminding us less than a week ago why the clintons are so important and why they are so important to american politics. >> i think people have stopped talking about her hair and that cosmetics. it's kind of bor
the war in iraq, and is ending the war in afghanistan. this is the president who ended don't ask, don't tell so that the love of country, not love of another determines fitness for service. who made equal pay for equal work the law of the land. >> anyway, last night, the -- they highlighted p major differences between the parties. donna edwards, u.s. congresswoman from maryland. gavin newsom, florida. let me just say -- as a student of politics, you are politician, i'm a student. everybody who wants to go into politics should read the speech. recite it a million times and say is this what a want to door inform a living? that's what politics is, selling. this is what between stand for and what we have done. we are better than the other guy. he was fantastic. >> chris, you know, not apologizing for it. so he put the record out there because so much of what we have heard during the republican convention was just a bunch of nonsense and it wasn't true. what governor patrick did last night, as he said, let's talk what the real record is and democrats, we are proud of what we have done. we

with everything you said. i would put one premise to that. she voted for the got awful war in iraq. >> yes. >> your thoughts, congressman, i think she will do much better in a general election with a clear field without obama running against her. there are no heavyweights to challenge her. i think she has a better chance of coming across the true democratic champion. your thoughts? >> she emerges after this election, win or lose by president obama, and he will win as the front-runner not only on a democratic side but i would even argue on the republican side. i think there's a real hunger -- there's a real hunger in the country as we sit here this evening for someone who understands politics, who loves politics but more importantly knows how to deliver. she has proven that. she stood above poll tiblitics l accepting the role as secretary of state and here we are four years later with her husband reminding all of us a week ago why the clintons are so important to the democratic party and frankly why they are so important to american politics. >> you know, i think people have stopped talking
to authorize the war in iraq. she gathered senate staff in the office and explained why she did that. that was about appearing like potential commander in chief. this if she runs for president in 2006 will be the moment we said she crossed the threshold and actually is that potential commander in chief. >> she also spoke as secretary of state at the ceremony there and introduced the president. let's listen to her at the moment stevens' body was brought back with the other three. >> now let me have the great honor of introducing someone who came to the state department earlier this week to grieve with us, he well understands and values the work that these men were doing for our country. the president of the united states. >> well, secretary clinton also had strong words for the terrorists. this is the tough part. let's listen. >> their sacrifice will never be forgotten. we will bring to justice those that took them from us. we will stand fast against the violence on our diplomatic missions. we will continue to do everything in our power to protect americans serving overseas, whether t
david brooks asked the same question and wonders is it the iraq war veteran who goes to the va? is it the student getting a loan to go to college? is it the retiree on social security or medicare? and these charts from the tax policy center show who that 47% is. these are the people that don't pay federal income tax. in 2011 46.4% of households paid no federal income tax so romney is correct there. let's zero in on what that group is. turns out nearly two-thirds of that 47% did pay federal payroll taxes. now, what about the people who paid neither federal income tax nor payroll tax? of that small group, 10% of elderly and 7% are nonelderly earning under $20,000 a year. the truth is when romney says 47% are nontax paying free loaders, he's wrong. and many of those he considers free loaders, specifically retirees and white working close voters, fit the romney voter profile. ezra cline is a policy analyst for msnbc. joe klein. just to break this out and to show that of the people who don't pay federal income tax, two-thirds do pay payroll tax and two-thirds of the other one-third
